  1. I like to listen to KCRW out of LA - can always find great music shows on demand

      I agree. Definitely feeds the foodie creative vibe with the wide range of music played. Been my favorite go-to for 15+ years.

    2. Great about:

      Canned Goods by Greg Brown here's a nice cover:
      Home Grown Tomatoes by Guy Clark can you argue with what tastes better than home grown tomatoes?
      Alice's Restaurant by Arlo Guthrie You can get anything you want's not really about food but why not?
      Wond'ring Aloud Jethro Tull best breakfast song ever
      Shanty Song - Jonathan Edwards're sitting down in the the kitchen, fixin' somethin good to eat, aren't ya?

      1. I'm currently listening to jurassic 5. Can't turn off "feedback" to save my life.

        1. I love to sing while I cook, so something classic, catchy, and fun -- Motown fits the bill most times for me. You can boogie while you saute. ;)

          1. +1 on the singing...Sam Cooke's Live at the Harlem Square Club is the favorite choice in that vein of late. Otherwise hip hop or jazz (Mingus, please), or something melodic like Local Natives.

            KEXP keeps me just able to not sound like a total dork when the hipsters that are so unavoidable here in Seattle talk music.

            In any event, unless the gf is watching the tele (kitchen is only separated from the living/dining room by a breakfast bar), in our house music and cooking go together like cornbread and collards.
